Vietnam Airlines is the first Vietnamese carrier to reopen regular commercial flights with Hong Kong.

Ngo Tri Hung, chief of the airline’s branch in Hong Kong, said that it will consider increasing the frequency of flights when Hong Kong's pandemic prevention and control policies are loosened further.

Vietnam Airlines' return flights between Hong Kong and Hanoi were suspended from February 6, 2020, due to Hong Kong's strict COVID-19 prevention and control policy.

In March this year, the carrier resumed flights from Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh City, and increased the frequency in late November.
